How we work is changing faster than ever before. As technology advances it disrupts how we plan, build and move throughout our region. ULI & PIDC will explore how technology like automation, A.I., robotics, precision medicine and advancement in ecommerce and logistics will impact our region and our use of industrial land. We’ll learn from the leaders driving change and explore how the market is responding. How will the future of work shape our landscape and how should we respond in order to stay competitive nationally and globally. This convening is part of a broader project to explore “The Future of Work”. Help us start the conversation.
